Mausam Release Date News

  • | September 20th, 2011

    Is ‘Mausam’ release delay a publicity gimmick?

    Is ‘Mausam’ release delay a publicity gimmick?

    The release in delay of Pankaj Kapoor’s directorial debut film Mausam has surely generated a lot of curiosity. While the makers of the film stated that Indian Air Force had demaned a few changes within the film before it was released, industry insiders feels that it could all be a marketing gimmick. The producers also stated that they had taken the approval from the IAF at the scripting stage itself and making changes at the last moment was impossible. The buzz in the industry is that the film’s team’s defiant stand may have been a publicity stunt to generate curiosity for the film. And why not? In the recent past, films like Aarakshan and Ready ran into trouble right before its release. Controversies ensured a decent opening for both the films. Another theory that is doing the rounds is that the team needed time to put final touches to the movie and the postponement gave them ample time to do so. Whatever the truth is, we hope the film is worth the wait.

    Mausam faces bad weather, misses TIFF bus

    Mausam faces bad weather, misses TIFF bus

    The Shahid-Sonam-starrer Mausam was supposed to be India’s most prized entry at the Toronto International Film Festival but thanks to the delay in the release, it has been withdrawn from the fest. Though the makers of Mausam tried to clarify and apologize for the last minute change in plan, but the organizers are annoyed. Talking to a news daily, TIFF’s co-director Cameron Bailey said, “Audiences in Toronto have been powerful champions for the promotion and growth of Indian cinema abroad. It’s a shame that our audiences will be left disappointed.” Back home too, the movie has been postponed by a week due to issues raised by the Indian Air Force (IAF). “The film has been postponed to September 23 from September 16 due to two reasons – we had received only a conditional NOC from the IAF and Censor board had given U-certificate but they wanted to review the movie once again,” the film’s director Pankaj Kapur told reporters in Mumbai. This delay will have a ripple effect on the big budget movies that are slated for release in the following weeks, because there is a strong chance that Mausam might eat into their audience or vice versa, which is bad news for all.
